I was pleased with the winners, especially Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto, both looking gorgeous in white tuxes; Leto's acceptance speech was one of the more eloquent in recent years. Bette Midler's performance--her first at the Oscars--was wonderful, as were most of the others--no cringe-worthy Rob Lowe and Snow White numbers for this show. And didn't Bette look and sound fantastic? She must have found the fountain of youth, because she hasn't aged in appearance for the last twenty years!
It would be fun to have Justin Timberlake or Neil Patrick Harris host next year's show. Either one, I think, would bring a breath of fresh air to the Oscars.
